hi Eric, how fascinating! since there is gender for all nouns and adjectives in Latin, what you want is "Agitatus" (for a guy) - "Agitatum" would be the neuter form. it's a good choice - "agitatus" in Latin means something that is constantly in motion because it is being driven, drawn, compelled... it wasn't used with that mental metaphor by the Romans though. if you want something more authentically Latin, you could say "turbatus," which is the word the Romans used for someone who was disturbed, shaken up, agitated. :-)
